             Here it is my KYOKO dress pictures, I made  this dress for my child's recital and  Christmas ,a little of a unusual colors for the holidays, but I really wanted that way...(so we can get year around use). I must confess to regret a little on my fabric choices,not that the fabric isn't pretty ,but I was afraid that would look so 70's like . Well, I like the end results now.
       This pattern is by Patty Young, as you see the dress have a Asian-inspired look . The pattern was easy to follow and her instructions were excellent ! The pattern can also be done as a shirt,and also short sleeves.There are many options to use different fabrics (like ours).Check it out here.
Essas sao fotos de um vestido que fiz para a minha filha ,nao gostei muita da minha escolha de tecido ,e um pouco dos estilos 70 ! Porem ,agora gosto do vestido ,ficou bonito!
  Esse vestido e de uma designer chamada Petty Young, foi facil de fazer, e pode ser costurado como uma camisa e ser feito com mangas curtas tambem. Aqui voce poderas ver mais dessa designer,como roupas e os tecidos por ela.

Knot dress

 The 1st time that I decided that I would give a serious trying on sewing again, I purchased a EASY pattern  for a Knot dress four years pass since then but it has became one of my favorite patterns, is easy to assemble and comfortable to wear, is easy to adjust the pattern to make just tops and even add  details like the apron. My daughter loves to wear hers and that is always a plus for me!

I made the little dress above  just for fun, I had a few small pieces of fabric from previous projects and a small vintage table top. The end result a cute little dress, don't you think so?

Isn't the fabrics so cute too? I got the main fabric from Wal-Mart years ago but I just couldn't decide what to make with it, now I believe I used for the perfect project, it turn out really sweet.
 Now I just need a little girl...

     I was trying to find a link for a free pattern for knot dress  for you my friends, I didn't exactly found the same pattern , but pretty close and just as cute.

Oh do let me know if you make one,and do take pics to share...
